Hey, I can do these memes now!

Actually I could do them before using WMP 10 on Cowzilla, but it's not how the game is played.


First, put your playlist on shuffle.

Second, post the first lines for the first 20 songs to come up (along with these instructions).

Third, have people guess the songs and artists in comments to the post.

Fourth, in a few days the answers will be posted.



1. Brass hat, CEO/Only appears for a cameo/The camp is so clean/And it keeps raining green

2. All I want is a room with a view/A sight worth seeing, a vision of you/All I want is a room with a view

3. Come on, come on/ Through the stations of night/Come on, come on/ Everybody's waiting

4.[spoken] This ain't rock n'roll, this is....genocide! [sung] As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent/You asked for the latest parties

5. I wanna live with a cinnamon girl/I can be happy, the rest of my life/With a cinnamon girl/A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night

6. You're dangerous, 'cause you're honest/You're dangerous, you don't know what you want/Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot/For any spirit to haunt

7. I'm digging deep inside my soul/ To bring myself out of this God-damned hole/ I rid the demons from my heart/ And found the truth was with me from the start

8. Down with love, the flowers and rice and shoes/Down with love, the root of all midnight blues/Down with things that give you that well-known ping/Take that moon and wrap it in cellophane

9. Well I've said it before, and I'll say it again/ You get nothing for nothing, expect it when/ You're backseat driving and your hands ain't on the wheel

10. I live my life like there's no tomorrow/ And all I've got I had to steal/ Least I don't need to beg or borrow/ Yes I'm living at a pace that kills

11. I've got you under my wheels now baby/ That's where you belong/
I've got you under my wheels now baby/ I'll drive you all night long

12. We're over, I'm done/ Yeah, it's time to have some real fun/ So I'm callin' all my ladies/ We're gonna key your Mercedes

13. Harvest moon, shine on down/ The chill in the air wakes the ghosts of the ground/ Northern winds, I hear your voice/The chill in the air takes all hope of choice

14. I hear a wind/ whistling air/ whispering/ in my ear

15. I hitched a ride with my soul/ By the side of the road/ Just as the sky turned black/ I took a walk with my fame/ Down on memory lane

16. Street fight, black night/ Heads are gonna roll/ Sleazy bar and a stolen car/ Where you need to go?

17. No strings, and no connections/ No ties to my affections/ I'm fancy free and ready for anything fancy/ No dates that can't be broken

18. Getting ready to rock/ Getting ready to roll/ I'm gonna turn up the heat/ I'm gonna fire up the coal

19. Picture me, on a postcard/ Picture me, on a magazine/ Call me on my private number/ You've got my photograph on your bedroom wall

20. Twist away the gates of steel/ Unlock the secret voice/ Give in to ancient noise take a chance a brand new dance/ Twist away the gates of steel/ Twist away, now twist and shout


I doubt anybody's going to get #1, #7, #8, #11, #13 and #17 without using Google (which is cheating) although it's possible windelina might get half credit on #17 because she's familiar with the genre. I'd arbitrarily bar phoenixalpha except I don't think even she could identify the six songs listed above.

Props to slutbamwalla, from whom this has been ganked.

14. B-52s "Roam"

Yeah, that's the only one I even remotely recognize, and mainly only because my wife and I did a (IMO, kickass) LotR video to that song.

*nods* You saw how well I did with yours. I suspect my daughter would have gotten more of those, but then she's more into Evanescence and similar bands.

Yikes!

All I could get is 2, 5, 19 & 20! (And those were the really easy ones!)

I thought 4, 6, 9, 10 and 18 would be fairly easy, since I'm pretty sure I've heard them on Top 40/AOR stations, but aside from those you got (do post the song & artist, please, for the benefit of others!) this list is pretty eclectic and includes a couple of tunes from the 1950s.

Ok here goes:

2. Picture This - Blondie
5. Cinnamon Girl - Neil Young
19. Picture Me - Republica
20. Gates of Steel - Devo

Interesting note: 2 of those titles have the word "picture" in them.
